  1. 1. Integrated regional energy planning for islands : Development of a decision-aiding methodological framework and application

    Författare :Andrew Barney; Heracles Polatidis; Stefan Ivanell; Magdalena Kuchler; Jesús Ramos-Martín; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Sammanfattning : Clear and inclusive planning guidance for island planners seeking transitions away from traditional fossil fuel based energy systems is currently needed. At present, the guidance from the scientific community has largely been provided piecemeal and with significant focus on the specifics of single islands and, more often than not, on proposed energy systems’ techno-economics.

  2. 2. A simulation tool for optimising combustion engine cylinder liner surface texture

    Författare :Andrew Spencer; Martin Priest; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maskinelement; Machine Elements;

    Sammanfattning : Fuel efficiency is one of the most important areas of automotive vehicle research and development today, with rising fuel costs, energy security and environmental concerns being at the forefront of customers and legislators minds. Heavy Duty Diesel Engines (HDDE) are the primary source of mechanical power generation in today’s trucks and buses and this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Semiconductor-ionic Materials for Low Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    Författare :Muhammad Afzal; Andrew R. Martin; Peter Lund; Hab. Armelle Ringuede; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Semiconductor-ionic materials; electrolyte-layer free fuel cell; low temperature solid oxide fuel cell; fuel to electricity conversion; Schottky junction; theoretical and experimental curves; Halvledar-joniska material; elektrolytskikt-fri bränslecell; lågtemperatur fastoxidbränslecell; bränsle till elomvandling; Schottky junction; teoretiska och experimentella kurvor; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is considered as an attractive candidate for energy conversion within the fuel cell (FC) family due to several advantages including environment friendly, use of non-noble materials and fuel flexibility. However, due to high working temperatures, conventional SOFC faces many challenges relating to high operational and capital costs besides the limited selection of the FC materials and their compatibility issues.

  5. 5. Process Utility Performance Evaluation and Enhancements in the Traditional Sugar Cane Industry

    Författare :Eyerusalem Deresse Birru; Andrew Martin; Catharina Erlich; Hailong Li; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sugar cane; energy saving; heat loss; steady state; transient state; CO2 emission; absorption chiller; pellet; bagasse drying; energy perfor-mance; traditional mills; modern mills; waste water; surplus power; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The need to achieve sustainable development has led to devising various approaches for the efficient utilization of natural resources. Renewable energy technology and energy efficiency measures feature prominently in this regard, and in particular for industries such as sugar production:  the sugar cane industry’s eponymous feedstock is a renewable resource, and mills have potential for increased energy savings via improvements to cogeneration units, electric drive retrofitting, and other measures.
